DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: Did God put something inside us thats supposed to tell us whats right and whats wrong? If he did, then why do some people go out and do terrible things without even thinking? A.M.

DEAR A.M.: Yes, God did put within each of us a sense of right and wrong what we usually call our conscience.
The problem is that our conscience that inner sense of right and wrong has been corrupted by sin.
Our conscience can alert us to right and wrong. But its not always a dependable guide and it can even deceive us if we arent careful. Thats why we need Christ, who lives within us when we welcome him into our hearts. Its also why we need the Bible, which God has given to guide us.
